Alabama A&M University Marching Maroon & White, “Show-band of the South”, from Huntsville, Alabama, is a high stepping, out-of-sight, dynamic marching band that sounds amaze the audience no matter the location. The Marching Maroon and White perform at every home football game to support their team on to victory in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
They have represented the state in the Rose Bowl Parade, the Independence Day parade in Washington D.C., and many other national events. They have been named one of the Top 10 Marching Bands among Black Colleges and Universities by Sports Illustrated and can also be heard on the Beyond Records recording artist Lucy Pearl remix "Dance Tonight". The Marching Maroon and White have been in existence since 1890. The progress of the program has been maintained by an outstanding team of notable musicians and teachers. Among these are: William Grant Still, Sr., father of the renowned American composer; William C. (W.C.) Handy, known as the “Father of the Blues”; Wade Hammonds, the first African American to be appointed as Chief Musician (Band Master in the United States Army); and Arthur B. Wesley, to name a few.
